Okay folk, I've had this engine/trans setup around for a few years (Rebuilt Ford 352 with Clark 265 5 speed trans) Now both the engine and trans are from 1966, but from different applications, engine came from a galaxie and trans from a school bus. Now I originally built this setup for a 40's 1 ton truck. And I'm curious if anyone has had a setup like this in a hotrod. The trans is the main thing that worries me. The gear ratio's are what you would expect from a bigger rig 7.58, 4.38, 2.40, 1.48, 1.00 But if I gear the rear end to have good low RPM's at interstate speed, you think I could work with this with first and second being really low and the spacing pretty poor. Now granted I'm not racing with this but just want something that is period parts that I can drive to town and make some noise. Anyway, just looking for thoughts on the matter, or any ideas to make this setup a little more driveable.
